With nursery admissions being conducted in full swing in the capital, parents and officials at 298 schools in the national capital running on DDA land are eagerly waiting for notification of guidelines.

As per reports, on the second day, the admission process continued for 1,400 schools.

Last week, the government directed the 298 schools, which include some of the best in the city, to withhold their nursery admission process till the time new guidelines are issued. Meanwhile, for the rest of the schools, the guidelines remain the same as last year.

These 298 schools were given the authority to conduct separate admission on the condition that they will give preference to applicants from the neighbourhood.While waiting eagerly for the guidelines, Tripta Das, a parent, said, “The list of such schools has not been made available on the admissions website. The entire city can’t be expected to know which school is running on DDA land and which is not. There is lot of confusion and chaos because of this.”

Admission criteria:

  • During the admission process, parents can use points set by the government like distance from school, parents as alumni, sibling in the same school, girl child etc.
  • However, schools will not give admission on the pretext of the applicant’s parents education, or if the child is proficient in music, or if the parent is vegetarian
  • Further, admission through management quota will be allowed
  • While following their criteria and points for admission, schools still have to follow the list of 51 criteria, set by the government
  • As per the data, the abolished criteria include parent’s education, parent’s profession, age, oral test and interview
